    Bovada Bitcoin bonus question

    Okay so I deposited on Bitcoin didnít click a bonus and still got one Ö should of forfeited it since I hate bonuses but I ended up making a bet with my entire account balance

    I decided to read the terms and conditions after and they say youíre only allowed to bet 50% of your deposit amount until bonus rollover is met

    Has anybody ever had a problem with vetting essentially youíre whole account a couple times and then claiming a bonus on bovada ?

    Honestly itís a really dumb rule but if I known I probably just would of forfeit the bonus because I like to go all in several times to build up an account

    Oh wow, I never knew that. Iíve completely broken that rule numerous times but was able to complete rollover and cash out. But Iíve been playing there for years and Hall of Fame- Red Room level so donít think they see me as abusing it.

    If you are relatively new, I would say adhere to it. But if you have been playing there for awhile and this isnít your first bonus, then I donít see them enforcing it.

    If you donít want it and want to forfeit it, you may want to check with CS via chat. Though I highly recommend going to community forum and ask for moderator for help to forfeit it. They are very helpful.

    It's in the rules- I've never followed it, never had an issue. However. Maybe at some point they will warn me. We shall see.

    I have been warned about that rule, but they did pay out. They said if I broke it again they would deduct the winnings in the future.

    Seems like something they could easily enforce through the setting of limits, but they don't...

    Most people haven't had an issue but I have read that a few people have encountered problems, but still been paid out.

    Thanks for the feedback guys Ö I think Iím safe since Iíve only done it one time Ö wish I could go all in without feeling like I broke a rule but Iíll try and grind it up

    I have not had a bonus with Bovada in a while but I am pretty sure they do not mind you betting your whole account on a game. In fact, that is what they want you to do. They are likely only allowing half of the amount for rollover.

    Bovada is pretty tricky with their rollovers. If you are not allowed to bet more than half of your account, they will just not allow you to do it when you enter the bet.

    I'm more pessimistic and think they have it as a fail safe. You get a bettor maxing his initial deposit with bonus and gets on a winning streak, they can just point to their rule and void the winnings. As far as I can recall, but definitely know currently that when I max my bets w/ initial amount + bonus I still get full credit on that wager towards the r/o. Though I won in the last 1-2 years, overall I've only made a small profit with them so they won't execute their fail safe.

    Asked about this couple years ago here and nobody ever heard of them enforcing it so I ignored the rule since and never had issue with getting paid. I broke this rule before every time I got paid because I bet aggressive and try to clear roll over quick. If I bust I just take another bonus. If I do well I take full payout after my roll over is cleared. Then deposit for new bonus. Unless you hit them for like 50k I doubt they even care and if they did theyíd probably ask you to stop and still pay you. Really no reason in running up a huge balance with them with speed or bitcoin in and out. Just cash out when roll over hit youíll be fine. IMO
